Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller to visit Raiders

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller is scheduled to meet with the Oakland Raiders according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post. Fuller will become the highest rated prospect to visit Alameda as he is considered by some to be a first round talent. NFL Network's Mike Mayock ranked Fuller as the second best cornerback in his updated position rankings.

The Second-Team All-American has six interceptions in the last three years with the Hokies. Fuller started every game in both 2011 and 2012. But in 2013, he was limited to only eight starts by a groin injury and surgery to repair a core muscle.

Listed at 6'0" and 190 lbs, Fuller has prototypical size for an NFL cornerback. He is very athletic and ran a 4.49 40-yd dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. Fuller's 38.5" vertical was the sixth best among cornerbacks. Fuller uses his size and athleticism to bully wide receivers. He plays very physical and is an excellent tackler. Fuller also has impressive instincts and anticipation.

The Raiders have three solid cornerbacks in D.J. Hayden, Tarell Brown and Carlos Rogers. Brown (29) and Rogers (32) were signed to one year deals. The Raiders targeted many current needs in free agency so look for them to draft for the future.
